Lunde v. State ex rel. Wyo. Workers' Safety and Comp. Div
In Lunde v. State ex rel. Wyo. Workers' Safety and Comp. Div., 6 P.3d 1256 (Wyo. 2000), the Court rejected a vocational evaluation that considered only jobs in California and did not take into account the claimant's physical disabilities.
The Court said: "If the Division is going to rely on a vocational evaluation to demonstrate current earning capacity, then that should be based on available jobs in Wyoming. In this case, as would be the case with any disabled worker, the jobs used in such an evaluation must be conducted with some basis in reality which gives recognition to the worker's disability." Lunde, 6 P.3d at 1260.
